GHC 16 is over. We will post a schedule for GHC 17 in late summer/early fall of 2017.

In 2015, we introduced Clusters, which may contain multiple tracks that cover similar topics. This should help you jump between tracks and explore new opportunities. Sessions within a Cluster are located near each other in the convention center to make it easier for you to get to the sessions you are interested in.

Below you can filter events by Date, Cluster, Track and Audience Level. Sessions with a “Presentation:” header are part of an hourlong series — you should look at the other presentations with that header. Please note: room assignments and presentation order within an hour session is subject to change

Too many details? Check out our conference overview for a quick glance on what's happening each day. You can also download a print version of the schedule here. We will have print copies for you that fit in your badge holders in Houston, so no need to bring your own!
